Project Car(s)

Just curious if anyone has a project car/s or is planning on one. Wife gave in on me getting one. Not sure what I want. These are my options. The s2000 and 460L would be the hard ones to get locally. I just can't make up my mind.

Between that list, i'd go with the 280z imo.

I don't really consider them project cars, however here are my weekend toys:

I'm in the process of looking for another specific car, but i'm also waiting until we build our new house and move into it so i'll have more room.

Re: Project Car(s)

I bought a '57 Ranchero on impulse last year for $1500. It's a roller. Body is straight, no glass, dash and some interior pieces are in the bed. I have an engine and trans for it in the barn. Had a leftover running 460 and had been looking for a while for something fun to stick it in, horse traded some random stuff for cobrajet heads for it. It's chilling under a cover in the backyard, it may be a while 'till I get around to it, I may be going to grad school next year if I get accepted......

 

Hopefully after grad school I'll see a sufficient salary increase to fund this project and keep it running......

Whoooaaa I was way off. Hmmm. I never thought I would mistakenly call a Datsun good-looking. What’s next? Gremlins? Eagle?
